Polling stations, districts and boundaries
Finding your polling station
Shortly before an election, you will be sent a poll card which contains details of your polling station including a map of the location.
Polling stations may change depending on the election. In the run-up to an election, you can also find details of your polling station by using Democracy Club’s polling station finder.
Information about polling districts and polling places can be found through the Council's Where I Live service. Search for an address in the district and you will be provided with information about the relevant polling district, polling station and elected representatives.

Parliamentary Boundary Review Toggle accordion
The Boundary Commission for England (BCE) is required by Parliament to undertake an independent and impartial review of all constituencies in England, to rebalance the number of electors in each constituency. The 2023 Boundary Review also requires that the number of constituencies in England increases from 533 to 543.
A secondary consultation on the BCE's initial proposals for new constituencies took place from 22 February to 4 April 2022 and included 32 public hearings across the country. The BCE will now analyse the feedback sent in during the first and second consultation stages. A final consultation later in the year will provide the opportunity to comment on any revisions subsequently made to the BCE's proposals.
Further information can be found on the BCE's 2023 Review webpage.
